More SSDs popping out, this time Transcend is taking the lead. The latest Transcend SSD is called SSD720, a SATA 6Gbps Solid state drive that uses several technologies like SandForce SF-281 controller, DuraClass and DuraWrite to boost its overall performance (both write and read speed).
According to Transcend, SSD720 could run at 550MB/s read speed and 500MB/s write speed. It sounds pretty cool, but it’s still not a world’s record breaker yet.
Transcend will release this SSD in three capacity of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB for the price of $149, $249, and $449, respectively. I really wish the price for SSD could be lowered down. No idea why it still won’t budge from the high price…
